Not quite sure how I passed this by before, but I just discovered Sarandon’s The Miniest Album 7” (split release on the Run Out and Banazan - home of the brilliant My Teenage Stride - labels) lurking beneath a pile of papers in a corner of the Geek Lair that has gone un-charted for a long long time. Not sure how it got there, either, but there it was. I’m so glad I unearthed it too, because it’s a darn fine concoction of sounds that recall the likes of Big Flame, Nightingales, early Wolfhounds (when they had the ‘LA Juice’ coursing in their veins), Hellfire Sermons, Yummy Fur, Emperor Julian, Playwrights… all the classiest of references of course. Songs of brevity and delight, and not unlike This Poison! whose Magazine collection I reviewed for Tangents recently. For anyone with a love of angular abrasive sounds with glorious Pop hooks, I’d say this seven track artefact was pretty much essential. Damn it, I’m even off to buy a second copy. And after you’ve downloaded the tracks on their website, I strongly suggest that you should too.
